The Human Story: From Hominids to Homo Intelligens. A Curriculum Map for 5th Grade.
Fluellen, Jerry E., Jr.
A curriculum map for a year-long, fifth-grade, multidisciplinary project takes a performance view of understanding from Harvard University Project Zero's Research Center. Throughout the project and in each assessment of understanding, learners show what they know about human evolution. This guide to deep disciplinary understanding of the big idea "human evolution" extends the School District of Philadelphia 2001 English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum to multiple intelligences (MI) as its primary theoretical base. The map, which uses Howard Gardner's new paradigm MI approach as its specific instructional design theory to provide all children with an education for power and consequence, connects science, ELA, social studies, and the arts.
